Join Garrick Chow for an in-depth discussion in this video Customizing the bass sound, part of GarageBand Essential Training.
- If you're a bass player, you'll be happy to know…that Apple has finally paid some attention to you…in this latest version of GarageBand.…In previous versions of GarageBand,…you could connect and record your bass,…but you had to go through one of the guitar amps,…and it's not easy to dial in a decent bass sound…through a virtual guitar amp.…Happily, GarageBand now includes a bass amp emulator.…For this example, I'll continue working with a project…we've been playing with in this chapter.…Now, like working with guitar amps,…you can change the bass sound before,…during or after recording the track.…Although I'm using the bass track I already recorded…for simplicity's sake here, you can play around…with the sounds before you record your own bass tracks.…
Also, this is an updated movie you're watching…that I'm recording in November of 2014,…with GarageBand 10.0.3.…As I mentioned in the What's New movie,…back at the beginning of this course,…Apple greatly enhanced the ability…to customize your bass sounds,…giving you the same kind of tools that you have…
